My tour of Madrid with Ignacio was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. His introduction to the city was the perfect way to to begin my visit to Madrid. His knowledge of the city, its history, architecture is vast and I walked away with so much information about Madrid that I could have obtained in no other way. I can highly recommend Ignacio for those who are interested in an exceptional tour of Madrid.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, this kind of reviews encourages me to make Guiding as my profession for the rest of my live. Take care and hope to see you back in Madrid again.

Ignacio was pleasant, prompt and pointed out key sights. Please note his English needs improvement.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan, thank you for your comment. Regarding to my English is first time I received a comment likes this one in more than 15 years working in Tourism. I lived in England when I was 8 years old and I grew almost like Native. Thank you and I will inform Reservations Department to see what has happened.

Ignacio was fantstic. He was able to adapt his tour to our limited mobility and made sure we had a grand overview of Madrid. In so doing, he has sparked a fire to return to Madrid for a more in-depth viewing. This was perfect for the limited time we had in Madrid. Thank you Ignacio's, The optimistic tourists

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, but to be honest, with such optimistic tourists was easy to Guide you))

Ignacio picked us up at our hotel on time and provided us a great view of of Madrid with good commentary. His English is good, he knows and shares the history of the area, and navigated the traffic without missing a beat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Was great to work for you as it was very easy to understand your interests. I wish you all the best on our city and hope that my Tour will help you to get started. Thank you Ignacio.

Ignacio knows his history well and enhanced our visit to El Escorial with many interesting details. Adding a visit to the Valley of the Fallen made this a full half day tour and worth having a driver.

Tour: #413004, Full Day Tour to Segovia, Madrid, Madrid, Spain    view tour
Date: Sep 13/19

Ignacio knows history and gave us a good tour of Segovia, explaining the architecture and art. He drove us to some good viewpoints before visiting each site. The drive back to Madrid we requested via mountain pass was scenic, but a little twisty, so you may wish to stick to the highway if you have any motion discomfort.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, thank you for your feedback. Return we usually do through highway but in this case as we went back through the Granja from there, where we discussed in advance it would be twisty, but the shorter route. We always have your comfort and safety in mind. Greetings, Ignacio.

Very enthusiastic, professional and knowledgeable. We saw and learned a lot from Ignacio. He took extra care to ensure that the tour would be a valuable and enjoyable experience for us. I'd book him again when visiting, and recommend him to others who want to get an efficient but thorough look at Madrid.

Ignicio was incredible! He was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He was patient and custom designed the tour to what we wanted to see and cover. I feel as though we saw all of Madrid in 5 hours, which would normally take 3 days. Especially the Prada Museum and the Palace. I am thrilled to have had him as our guide and will recommend Ignicio to anyone and everyone I know traveling to Madrid.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, for Feed backs like this one we do all days our best))

The tour guide himself was fine but we didn't realize that the majority of the tour was while driving in a car and passing by attractions. We would have enjoyed getting out a couple of the major ones, like the palace or the central square. He did say let me know if you want me to stop to take pictures but that was difficult since I wouldn't know until we are driving by that I would have liked to stop. I realize parking is difficult but I think the tour would have been a lot better if we had stopped more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ok thank you Gerard for your suggestion, I will have it on mind on future Tours. However it takes a lot of time to park at the center and for that kind of Tour is better a Driver and Guide separately, which then is double price. As always I tried to make my best to make your Tour remarkable and I appreciate you had a good time after all. Greetings, Ignacio

A tour with Ignacio IS NOT TO BE MISSED. He was over the top in his knowledge and flexibility to make sure we saw what we were interested in, not just a strict set up tour. I have used Tours by Locals many times before, but Ignacio set a new standard for us. Do take advantage of booking a tour with him, you will not be disappointed. He reached all of us, who ranged from age of 18 to 75, with special insights and kept us all wishing we could use him on other tours. Segovia is not to be missed with him

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, really was a pleasure to spend the day. You were a really nice family. Hope to see u again on the future

Excellent!! Ignacio was like a favorite and beloved family member showing you the town. We had flight problems so that one of us did not get there in time and the one arriving did not have phone access. Ignacio was contacted by text - he was at the airport waiting with a sign with our name. Things went on without a hitch. The tour was personalized for what we wanted to see most. So much of Madrid was seen in such a short time. We highly recommend this tour and Ignacio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Perfect, thank you very much, was a big pleasure

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paula&Felipe, Sorry to receive this comment, as I was always try do my best on all Tours and is my first negative feedback since I work over 2 years at Toursbylocals. I agree was not my best day for me which I had to arrange some Private requests as yours was passed into me the day before and I have had any time to prepare. I also did my best when Felipe got sick going for drinks for you, so I thought would be better to leave him without not too much overloading information. Hope to see u again.

We booked our driving tour with Ignacio at short notice, but he squeezed us in and we spent our last Sunday morning in Madrid on a delightful drive with him. I almost wish we'd done it first, as it really gave me a sense of the city as more then just old town. Ignacio himself was gracious and informative and funny. Impressive for nine AM!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, pleasure was mine
